Aditya Dhumuntarao began working with my PhD adviser, Joe Kapusta, at the University of Minnesota through the REU program in the summer of 2015. I soon joined the collaboration during my first year at Macalester.

We eventually published a paper extending the ideas from “A Dynamical Three-Field AdS/QCD Model” by applying AdS/QCD to a pure SU(3) gauge theory. This paper, Dynamical AdS/Yang-Mills Theory, was published in Phys Rev D, and can be found on the arxiv.
